Why it rocks
- The CGI was really good.
- Awesome sound effects.
- The soundtrack was cool.
- The light cycle scene was awesome.
- Enjoyable characters.
- Well written story.
- While the CGI back then was really good due to how it was handled being made with computers, it unfortunately aged badly as years pass. Still though, the CGI may have aged badly, it is still worth watching.
